One of the best, and most iconic, posters produced by British Railways in the post-war period: David Shepherd’s classic Service by Night. The poster shows a late-night passenger train departing from an atmospheric King’s Cross station. Absolutely superb, and hard to find in such good condition. This poster was recently rediscovered in a loft in west London, together with a collection of posters, ephemera, and drawings from the former British Railways Publicity Office at Paddington.
